Leading property company JLL has recently completed a c. 31,000 sq ft warehouse refurbishment at Unit B Orion Business Park in Cheadle, Stockport, with a tenant already lined up to take the unit, on behalf of Mayfair Capital Investment Management.
Richard Johnson, Director in Industrial & Logistics Leading at JLL North West, said: “We’ve seen huge demand for good quality industrial and logistics units in the North West in recent years and sustainability is now high up on the agenda for many businesses.”
JLL led the comprehensive refurbishment project which prioritised sustainability and ESG improvements throughout, and includes a modern detached warehouse with its own yard and extensive two-storey offices.
The project raised the building to an EPC ‘A’ rating, and included the installation of electrical vehicle charging points, photovoltaic solar panels, high efficiency mechanical and electrical equipment and showers, a bike store and changing rooms to encourage active travel. JLL ensured a high proportion of the former tenant fit out that was removed was recycled.
Located on Oakhurst Drive, just off Bird Hall Lane, the site is a five-minute walk from Adswood Turning Circle bus stop, with strong links to regional motorways via the M60 Orbital.
The unit also boasts two level access loading doors and a separate car park with 28 spaces.
Keiran Melfi, Director in building consultancy at JLL North West, said: “Businesses are looking at how they can make the most out of their warehousing space, and this modern unit in Stockport was designed with sustainability as the key factor and the wellbeing of workers in mind, including shower facilities to make low carbon commuting more attractive. It’s a great example of a mixed-use space where a company can thrive.”
